Cleaning Different Carpet Fibers

Cleaning Different Carpet Fibers

The ease of cleaning your carpet can be greatly affected by the type of fiber that it is made of, as different fibers respond in different ways to water-based stains, inks, dyes, and the various other substances that typically leave stains on the carpet. While many carpets are valued for their luxurious feel and look, these same expensive carpets may be even more vulnerable to staining than cheaper, synthetic carpets.

Whatever the fiber your carpets are constructed from, our cleaning experts at WOW Total Cleaning have the resources and expertise to remove the toughest and most stubborn stains or soiling, leaving your carpet looking, smelling, and feeling its absolute best. Call 512-291-0048 today to find out how we can meet your Austin carpet cleaning needs.

Types of Fibers

Different types of fibers are usually selected for their durability and ease of cleaning. Choosing the right fabric for your particular living or business situation is an important process, and you should consider the following cleaning issues for various fabric types:

  • Wool: A natural fiber noted for its luxurious feel and look, but especially susceptible to staining and wear.
  • Nylon: Nylon 6 is the most common fiber used in carpeting and has excellent durability and ease of cleaning
  • Polypropylene: Polypropylene is most notable for its resistance to moisture, making it an ideal indoor/outdoor choice.
  • Triexta: A soft and luxurious fabric, triexta also boasts inherent and permanent stain resistance without special treatments.

Each type of fabric has its own particular advantages and vulnerabilities, but the longevity of your carpet, regardless of the fabric type, can be increased with proper maintenance and care.
